Cauliflower is a rich source of nutrients especially vitamin C and folate, and a reasonable amount of potassium and Vitamin B6. It also contains biovflonoids and other ingredients that help to prevent cancer.
SBcanning suggests that when cooking, you must boil or steam to the point that the cauliflower is still firm, to retain the flavour and keep the nutrients. Cauliflower can be cooked in an open pot (preferably stainless steel or glass), as iron and aluminium will change the color and taste.
Now, on to the recipe!
